The Time is Now to Live Your Dream
Finding the time to get all we do in a day done can be tricky, especially if you have a job that requires yo to be away from home. The question I get asked about is how to work at home online in 2018 and make actual money without sacrificing so much time that we have to let our other priorities suffer? Let’s talk about that and see what we can come up with.
Having been in the same position you are right now I can help explain what works and provide what you need to get started if you so choose. After facing a job layoff and a bit unsure of the future direction, I turned to the internet to help bridge the gap. I found that it is harder than you may think to make a living online, that’s being honest. But at the same time today’s online world has changed a bit and things are more diverse with more options to try and also at the same time many options are now way easier to start than before. The drive for instant access to everything has lead to plug and play website creation tools and email automation, 2 major players in online commerce.
Home is where the heart is
My option for working online is not a job but a business, you will report to yourself and be accountable to yourself which means your success or failure is up to you to control, not a boss or a company. I am talking about Affiliate Marketing, I know you have heard about it but why is it such a good option for online income from home? Let’s find out. Here is definition of what affiliate marketing is in case you are curious from Wikipedia
Do Not Fear The Success
I am sure you have wished you could step back from your current employment situation and try something else, but what probably stops you is two fold. You are concerned that you could lose a steady income if you quit and dive in and at the same time you are a bit hesitant to try something you are not sure about fearing it may be scam that leads you in the wrong direction. We are all naturally skeptical with what we see online today and you are right to be cautious.
How It Happens
The first step to making this work is to actually take the step and stop being afraid of failure, there is a certain mindset needed to make affiliate marketing work and many just do not have it. It takes an understanding that this business takes some time to come together, expecting to make money instantly will lead to a much rougher path as you will not be willing to lay the foundation for success. I can tell you that affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick idea nor is it a scam, this is a legitimate business that can ultimately help you step away from the day to day grind and allow you to do what you love and do it when you want.
Here are some elements needed to make this come together for you. In no particular order. Also, you can refer to my “Beginners Guide To Affiliate Marketing” for more details, it is quite a large article but goes into much more detail than I have here
- Web hosting service
- A Website
- Content management system
- Training Program
- Keyword research tool
- Email Marketing tool
- Strong desire for success
Bring It Home
All the above can be done from your living room and at your own pace. Putting in a hr or two a night or even just a few minutes can lead to success. It takes a commitment to make it work, it is like a job that you will work at every day but instead it is done at home and you answer to only yourself. I would recommend getting signed up with a program that teaches you what you need to know about this industry, there are a few good ones online, like Affilorama, or Bring the Fresh, But me personally I use Wealthy Affiliate since they have everything needed in one place for folks just starting out it is a can’t beat deal.
This was just a quick posting on how to work at home online, I have provided a few links for you to investigate for additional information which will provide much more detail. I have found that affiliate marketing is a very rewarding and exciting business once you get the hang of it. Trying new products or services and promoting what you are passionate about, all while doing it from your easy chair. Starting and building a great foundation with a website is where it all begins.
I hope to see you online, once you get going send me your web link and I will comment on your website and help in any way I can. Feel free to comment below or email us if you have a question. I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
Cheers and have a great day
